National Geographic was a staple in homes for almost a century. The high quality magazine printed extraordinary photos on thick rich paper and many people held onto them for decades.
These old magazines are easy to find at thrift stores and the paper is great for using in crafts.
I like to pop in a little gift card with anything I give.
While my tastes tends to run to pretty and elegant many of my friends have more avant garde taste and I make up these little note cards when I give items to them.
Easy to make, just take some interesting pages from National Geography and glue to card stock. I do use a paper cutter which makes the edges nice and square.
